Non-Toxic Baby

We know that one of the motivating factors for going green is to protect a baby or little one from harmful chemical exposure early in life, when they're most vulnerable.

Here are a handful:

Green to Grow baby bottles are both BPA (Bisphenol-A) and phthalate (plasticizer) free--better for the world and for baby. (Learn all about plastic in containers from The Green Guide.)

Natursutter natural pacifiers are environmentally-friendly versions of the old standards. Each one is PVC, chemical, and  phthalate free, making it something you won't mind having in your newborn's mouth.

A good read for a parent interested in having an eco-baby is Organic Baby by mother and interior designer, Kimberly Rider. She tells you what to consider, from cribs to bath bubbles to broccoli, and why it matters.

And finally, here are some ASOG-approved tips for creating a non-toxic safe haven for your little ones from a workshop Deborah and Shelley of Green to Grow hosted last May in honor of Eco-Moms and Mother's Day.
